The organizers of the Bloodstock festival have issued the following statement about Megadeth appearing on the bill:

"We are thrilled to announce that Megadeth is confirmed to headline the Sunday night slot at Bloodstock 2014.

"This will be the thrash icons’ first appearance at Bloodstock. In a career nearing 30 years and counting, Megadeth has sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning five consecutive platinum albums in the US and numerous accolades along the way, including 11 Grammy nominations.

"The band’s latest studio album released in June, ‘Super Collider,’ reunites firebrand frontman Dave Mustaine once again with guitarist Chris Broderick, bassist David Ellefson, and drummer Shawn Drover. The release debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 and #22 on the UK album chart and notched up Top 40 album chart debuts in a further 22 countries worldwide."

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine comments: “2014 is the 20th Anniversary for ‘Youthanasia’, and we are celebrating that by headlining the Bloodstock Festival in the glorious UK. Every year Megadeth and our UK fans get closer and celebrate another year of metal greatness together. This is the beginning of 2014...the best is yet to come."

20th anniversary of Youthanasia??? Crap, I'm getting old. Until now, I didn't stop to realize that Dave's been sucking for 20 years. I knew it's been awHile, but 20 years?

This also reminds me that my 20 year High School reunion will be next year. Crap, I'm getting old.
